2021 Topps Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 Shows the Way
2021 Topps Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 trading cards delve deeper into the hit show. It’s not only in the base cards, but with the inserts and autographs as well.
Like the Season 1 set, hobby boxes are on the small side. Packaged in a tin made to look like The Child, each has just seven packs. Hobby boxes guarantee either an autograph or sketch card.
2021 Topps Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 Checklist Overview
The main set has 100 cards. It recaps all eight episodes of the second season. While some of the key story elements have already been captured in the print-on-demand Topps Now set, the checklist is bigger here. Arriving long after the final episode dropped on Disney+, there shouldn’t be any concern about holding things back due to possible spoilers.
Parallels, which combine to land one per hobby pack, include:
- Bronze – /50
- Silver – /25
- Gold – /10
- Black – 1/1
Autographs and Other Inserts
Autographs cover actors from the show. At this point, there is no list of signers. Besides the base versions, there are Red (/99), Bronze (/50), Silver (/25), Gold (/10), Printing Plate (1/1) and Black (1/1) parallels.
Mutli-signed cards come with in the form of Dual Autographs and Triple Autographs. Both of these have one-of-one Black parallels. Duals also have Gold (/10).
Hobby boxes that don’t have an autograph come with a sketch card instead. In addition to traditional cards, Shaped Sketch Cards are also randomly inserted. These are cut to look like the outline of the Mandalorian helmet.
Prop Relics bring memorabilia onto the checklist. This includes pieces of the Razor Crest, Mando’s ship. Prop parallels include Silver (/25), Gold (/10) and Black (1/1).
Commemorative Metal Button cards are the set’s manufactured relic element. Different buttons mix with a variety of characters. These also have Red (/99), Bronze (/50), Silver (/25), Gold (/10), Printing Plate (1/1) and Black (1/1) versions. Autograph versions are also available, but these are exclusive to retail.
